For those with serious racing in mind, Bendigo Yacht club have 2 trophy series during the year that run in conjunction with an overall Club Championship series.

For those who would like to learn or improve their sailing skills Bendigo Yacht club has weekly training on Saturday mornings. From this we have had many sailors who have had terrific results on the word stage such as:

  • Glenn Ashby who has won multiple World Championships, a Silver Medallist at the Olympics, won the Americas cup as part of the USA team Oracle/BMW and came runner up with Emirates Team New Zealand in the most recent challenge 2013.
  • Allan Goodall who has won multiple Word Championships in the A Class Catamarans

These sailors along with many other National and State Champions are proof that the waters of Lake Eppalock are the perfect breeding grounds for some of the best sailors in the world.
